Koffee With Karan had Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao on the couch across Karan Johar, answering questions he has always tried to evade, until now. Aamir Khan on the hot seat, said that he was not on the show until now because he did not like Karan Johar because of a few misconceptions he had about him.
Here are the points that were discussed before the rapid fire started scorching Karan Johar's sets:
- Aamir Khan got candid about his choice to not to dance in someone's wedding. He said he does not like to feel he is on sale. And the reason why he dances on anybody's wedding will be because he wants to enjoy the wedding and not because he is getting paid for it.
- Aamir Khan says that he does not have the Salman Khan's stardom. He says that for his films to work, he needs a good script, good director and the film has to come out really well. But for Salman Khan, he can just shake his belt and comes with his goggles behind his shirt and everyone goes bananas about it.
- He also said that he did not like Salman Khan during Andaz Apna Apna. But during the time of his break up with his ex-wife Reena, Salman Khan came over to his house, and they spoke over drinks and they had a connection there that changed everything. They became friends from then on.
- Aamir thinks that Salman Khan had matured and not the brat that he used to be from Andaz Apna Apna times and he too had eased up a little bit and this helped to balance them at that point of time. And this struck a chord that developed a friendship and fondness that stays today.
- Aamir Khan also tried to patch things up between Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan, but it did not work out.
- Kiran Rao thinks it is not easy to live with Aamir. She says it is not easy to live around a person who has a huge life around him. And for a person who has lived a very normal life, life with Aamir is not normal at any standard.
- Kiran says, "I have never lived in a serious intense relationship before, I have never lived with anyone before. It was complete change in life for me. When we met, Aamir was going through a very terrible time, he was very fragile, any small thing could set him off."
- Kiran adds by saying, "I loved Aamir and I got a super package deal with the rest of the family. Even if we had not had Azad, I would have felt really complete with Ira and Junaid."
- Aamir Khan's biggest fear in life is loosing the people he loves.
- Aamir Khan is allergic to loud music. He is a party destroyer, says Karan Johar. He also says that Aamir sits in a corner at any party and hangs out with them. Aamir spent Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani success party with 20 people in Deepika's bedroom, Kiran said.
- Aamir Khan told Sanjay Leela Bhansali, that he did not like Devdas, when he was invited to watch the film at Shahrukh Khan's house.
- Kiran Rao has recently discovered that one cannot disclose news about someone dating someone else when they spot them partying very often.
